India produces about 3, 80,000 tones of e-waste per annum, which includes only the waste generated from television sets, mobile phones and computers; a major chunk of these come from organisations. E-waste produced in India includes over 100,000 tones from refrigerators, 275,000 tones from TVs, 56,300 tones from personal computers, 4,700 tones from printers and 1,700 tones from mobile phones. The unorganized recycling sector which fails to practice eco-friendly e-waste recycling methods release large amount of toxic chemicals.

The consequences have been deadly.
